Growing Daikon, also Japanese radish, Lo Bok

28 Apr 22 (USA - Zone 6a climate)
Some maps say im zone 6a others say I'm in 6b so I'm not sure my exact zone but it's definitely 6. I bought this variety to plant as a cover crop with plans to leave it to grow until winter kills it. When is the best time for me to plant it? I would prefer it to get super big before bolting for all the reasons they are used as a cover crop. My absolute preference would be it grew huge and long then freeze without many bolting.

Look in the monthly calendar guide at the top of the page. Give it plenty of fert especially Nitrogen.
